Prince Charles Will Reportedly Cover
Part of Harry and Meghan's Security
Costs after Trump Refuses

Original Article

The bombshell decision by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to lay down their royal duties and move to Los Angeles unsurprisingly inflicted some additional security costs, and according to the US president’s recent Twitter rant, he was not about to pay for the couple’s protection in their newly found home. Charles could reportedly cover half of his son Prince Harry’s and his wife Meghan Markle’s security costs in the US, a royal insider told the Daily Mail. The Prince of Wales, who has just recovered from coronavirus, would pay a “private contribution” of up to £2 million ($2,5 million) every year  

First sentence added to intro. Must be included.

Talk about a snarky headline! Whose kid is Harry anyway? Not President Trump’s… Charles: Not our circus, not our monkeys. Have a nice day.

Well, duuuh. Why the heck should American citizens be compelled to pay for foreign royalty? Don't care that she's American, she's a private citizen here. Pay yer own.

PS. Three very BIG cheers to our leader for his common sense and standing up for America. We don’t do royalty here. And they are no longer even royalty. We need our $$$ to take care of our own. Now, if we can keep the Dems’s grubby hands out of the taxpayers’ funds….

It's his son and grandchild. I am sure they need some security and if he is willing to pay for it, fine. It's certainly not the USA's problem.

Substitute 'Trump' for 'American Taxpayers' and the headline would be more accurate and less inflammatory.

The United States has NO obligation to pay for anything these two self absorbed idiots want. Harry is not a diplomat or representative of any government.

This is a definite problem for Charles. Someday he will be King (God help the Kingdom), and he will have a son, who clearly does not make wise decisions, living it up among the commoners abroad. Harry and his family will be huge terrorism or ransom targets. Security is mandated, but I reiterate that Harry's choice is not the U.S. taxpayers' problem.

Get a four bedroom home with a two car garage somewhere other than California or New York and you'll be set for life with the money you have, ex-royals. Poor daddy has to make such a sacrifice for his own flesh and blood. As if we're supposed to feel sorry for him and his millionaire son and daughter-in-law. I don't think most Americans will be ashamed of our president for not wasting taxpayers' money on those entitled jerks.

I cannot help but wonder about Prince Harry's conscience [if he has one] regarding his marriage to an unstable, selfish Hollywood 'starlet'. He has abandoned the country of his birth, his royal heritage, his military record and buddies, his family, grandmother, Father and brother plus three little nieces and nephews, and yes, his religious upbringing in the Church of England. It was a broad hint during his wedding that Meghan is married to her black church yet and the new black Hollywood crowd. Will Harry ever again see the inside of an Anglican Church? Will Archie be raised learning only spiritual songs? With Meghan as his wife, it appears that she is calling all the shots and making all the decisions.

Charles will be forever hamstringed by Harry over Diana. How can Charles not provide for everything to keep Harry and Meg safe? Not that I agree with it but Harry and Meg have put Charles in a bad position If anything were to happen Charles would be blamed and he would never live it down. Also don’t see such a bright future for Meg since she always seems to put her foot in her mouth. She’s thinking they will be worth billions. We’ll see.

There was never a bit of verification that we were ever asked to pay for their expenses. I was sorry to see Trump jump in and fall prey to the trashy British journalism. What Charles pays for is his business. The British taxpayers have been fine paying for Fergie the freeloader to shack up at Royal Lodge with Andy all these years. There are six buildings on site to accommodate all the staff that keeps that place up and running. I am with you, #1. One has to wonder why the gossips continue on and on about this couple.

There is no reason why the American taxpayers should be paying for Meghan and Harry’s supposed Security needs. They have the wherewithal through Harry’s Daddy Chuck to pay for that. Since Meghan and Harry are now just private persons living in the USA, they really don’t need any more security then all the other Hollywood related personalities, and the American taxpayers don’t pay for their security.

FTA...'this type of financial aid could be a significant blow to the 71-year-old monarch’s budget..." What a stupid article. First of all, Charles isn't the monarch. The monarch is the Queen, Harry's grandmother and she is 94yrs old this month, not 71 years old. Who ever wrote this is not very knowledgeable about who is who in England.

The money that Charles has is from income generated by Duchy of Cornwall about 26 + mill per year. He's been the Duke of Cornwall for the last 50 years. That money comes from the working taxpayers of Cornwall..He makes additional money marketing foodstuffs with the " royal" name. Then there are the inheritances that comes down through the family. The Harkles want security, ask dad or pay it yourself. The Harkels are worth about 35 mil. America owes you NOTHING.

Daddy Charles is probably paying for security to keep Meghan from whining he’s a racist if he doesn’t. I’ve said before the smarter one of the two will divorce the other one. But, when both are not too bright, they just may stay together and use each other kind of like the Clintons and Obamas.

Charles should demand a DNA test on Andrew. Princess Diana was diddling the stable boy, while Charles was diddling the old lady he wound up marrying. Andrew looks like the stable boy. 9Diana's paramour not actually the stable boy - he was a royal captain of some kind, in charge of the royal stables.)

To those worrying about someone wanting to kidnap any of this sorry lot, forget about it. When Andrew was cavorting with Epstein and Bubba, was his being kidnapped a worry for the Queen? There are dozens of minor royals going hither and yon every day without bodyguards. These two don’t even raise a blip on a kidnapper’s radar. And sadly, I’d say that includes poor little Archie, who couldn’t choose his parents. Nutmeg has been pushing for security because of Who She Is. (stop that giggling)

Harry will always BE a royal, due to his birth parents, that will never change. But he is trying to make a life for himself outside The Palace, and I hope these two succeed. Is that not what everyone has been saying for about a decade now anyway? That most of the royals should get a job? Well Harry is trying, and yet people still are whining.

Barry’s research is so well-respected that he was appointed to the federal government’s official Board of Experts on Infectious Disease, and he now serves on the faculty of the Tulane University School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine.

SACRAMENTO, Calif.  — The owners of a San Francisco Bay Area solar energy company pleaded guilty Friday to charges that they plotted a massive Ponzi scheme that defrauded investors of $1 billion. As part of their plea deal, prosecutors said the husband and wife team from Martinez agreed to forfeit over $120 million in assets, including a fleet of collector cars and vacation homes in the Caribbean, Lake Tahoe and Las Vegas purchased entirely with cash. Jeff Carpoff, 49, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to commit wire fraud and money laundering, which carry a maximum penalty of up to 30 years in prison, the U.S. Attorney’s office in Sacramento said.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is demanding the racial data of those contracting the novel coronavirus, contending that it is “critical to ensuring an equitable and just response to this crisis across the board.” While the virus appears to be no respecter of persons, infecting more than one million people globally, Warren believes it is “critical” to have racial data to properly respond to the pandemic. “Our health care system is rife with racial disparities. Racial data on coronavirus will be critical to ensuring an equitable and just response to this crisis across the board,” she wrote in a tweet, referencing an article from the Atlantic. “But we don’t have that data—yet,” she added:

The bombshell decision by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to lay down their royal duties and move to Los Angeles unsurprisingly inflicted some additional security costs, and according to the US president’s recent Twitter rant, he was not about to pay for the couple’s protection in their newly found home. Charles could reportedly cover half of his son Prince Harry’s and his wife Meghan Markle’s security costs in the US, a royal insider told the Daily Mail. The Prince of Wales, who has just recovered from coronavirus, would pay a “private contribution” of up to £2 million ($2,5 million) every year

Jon Tester (D-Mont.) calling on President Trump to comply with the oversight requirements Congress attached to the $2.2 trillion coronavirus relief package signed into law last week. “With trillions of taxpayer dollars being spent, it is critically important for the Administration to ensure full transparency and willingness for independent oversight,” Romney and Tester wrote in the April 3 letter to Trump.

On Friday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “The Last Word,” House Intelligence Committee chairman Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) reacted to the firing of Intelligence Community Inspector General Michael Atkinson by stating President Trump is “retaliating against people that are on his enemies list and doing it in the dead of night” as people are dying. Schiff stated, “We’re in the middle of a pandemic, and what is this president doing, as thousands of people are dying? He is retaliating against people that are on his enemies list and doing it in the dead of night. This is just another showing of the character or the lack of character of this president.

U.S. Attorney John Durham’s review of the Russia investigation is putting increased scrutiny on former CIA Director John Brennan, searching for any undue influence he may have had during 2017’s intelligence community assessment of Russian interference. Durham, selected by Attorney General William Barr last year to lead this inquiry, drove to Washington, D.C., in March to ensure the investigation stayed on track during the coronavirus outbreak. The top Connecticut federal prosecutor is looking into highly sensitive issues, including whether Brennan took politicized actions to pressure the rest of the intelligence community to match his conclusions about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s motivations, according to sources cited by the Wall Street Journal.

Joe Biden said he would follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommendation to wear a face mask in public.“I think it’s important to follow the science. Listen to the experts. Do what they tell you,” Biden told ABC’s This Week on Sunday, adding, “If I go out in public — and I have not gone to commercial places of late, I haven’t gone to my local church, etc. There’s no services, actually. But my generic point is that you should follow the science.”The move differs from how President Trump said he would act in public. Trump said Friday he would not wear a mask because it could interfere

Sunday on ABC’s “This Week,” former Vice President Joe Biden said President Donald Trump should have stopped air travel from China sooner than he did to fight the coronavirus pandemic by saying 45 nations had already blocked “China personnel from being able to come to the United States.” On Trump’s response to the outbreak, Biden said, “I would tell him what we went through a similar crisis, you have to move swiftly. We have to move more rapidly. You have to implement the Defense Production Act, empower a supply commander, create, you know, a Defense Production Act for banks for small business loans, you got to faster than slower, and
Bill de Blasio, America's worst mayor 33 replies

After the 9/11 terrorist attack, Rudy Giuliani’s calm presence was an inspiration to the entire nation. Today, New York is a different kind of ground zero, and it has a very different kind of leadership — which is to say, the weak and woefully inadequate kind. To say that Mayor Bill de Blasio has done a poor job under pressure is to understate the case. In the simpler times of 2014, New Yorkers had the luxury of chuckling at his weak leadership, as when he killed a defenseless groundhog at a public event. But that he has proven himself such a clown amid a grave crisis,

In a bigoted effort to mislead its readers and demonize the American South, the far-left New York Times on Thursday manufactured a wildly misleading coronavirus map. Using a desperately sweaty piece of reverse-engineering to make Southerners (and I’m a proud one, Yeeehaawwww) look as irresponsible as possible, the Times — a fake news outlet that hires racists, spreads deliberate misinformation, and has already smeared Christians as the cause of a coronavirus outbreak that’s currently hitting mostly secular, urban areas like New York — published a steaming pile of fake news. “Where America Didn’t Stay Home Even as the Virus Spread” is the name of the piece
